Grenada Holding on to Air Jamaica Flights

grenada

The Grenada Board of Tourism is spending $250,000 to support Air Jamaica's overnight nonstop flights from New York to the island. This is part of a marketing agreement which starts during the current 10th year of service to the island. Grenada also recently secured three weekly American Airlines nonstop flights from Miami to St. George's.

With a new government in office, Grenada— which has the enviable distinction of being the only Eastern Caribbean destination to be served by the 40-year-old carrier— understands the importance of prime positioning in the U.S. marketplace, where airfares to the Caribbean rival those being offered from neighboring islands. Air Jamaica currently flies between New York and Grenada on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and will add a Friday flight beginning June 26, and a Monday service starting July 13 for a total of four weekly flights through the summer travel season. The airline also returns temporarily to Barbados over the summer with two weekly flights.
